“The hardest part is when the river
is too swift and goes underground for days on end”  

~Jim Harrison from Songs of Unreason  for Day 14 of Jilly’s 28 Days of Unreason

so, for a time
the song is hidden
from my listening ears
but still there
deep down
wandering the caverns
of my dreams

and I am left
dizzied by love
until overcome once more
by the swiftness
of your flow



My second published poetry and photo book has finally arrived! – and it’s looking good.  I have half a dozen copies at a special pre-release price of $NZ15 (plus postage).  Use my ‘contact’ button to get your order in, or message me on facebook.

Just a taster:


a soft sound
as small grey feathers
from darting flight
to darkness

I hold in my hands
the remnants
of a song
